Planetary chemistry has been one of the most active research frontiers in the US, Europe, and Japan in the past half century. Due to various restrictions, planetary science has not been fully developed in China. This situation does not match the status of China as one of major space powers. Furthermore, it could become an obstacle for China to play a more important role in space explorations. Therefore, it is very urgent to develop planetary chemistry in universities and colleges in China so as to train planetary chemists to support Chinese space explorations. In consideration of the significant role of planetary chemistry in space explorations, in this report, we delve into the core of planetary chemistry and discuss its uniqueness, then compare the differences between China and other countries, and finally propose how to develop planetary chemistry discipline in China.
